Ukraine SIG #Ukraine "Courland-Kherson Jewish Relocation, 1837-1840" database #ukraine
We are happy to announce the completion of our project. The
"Courland-Kherson Jewish Relocation, 1837-1840" database is
live and public on JewishGen.
Here is this dataset's introductory description file:
This database contains information about 5,872 Jews who relocated
from towns in Courland to agricultural colonies in Kherson Guberniain 1837 and 1840.
The documents were handwritten in Russian, and reference the years
1837 and 1840. The documents cover all the major towns in Courland
Gubernia â?? Bausk, Friedrichstadt, Gazenpot, Goldingen, Grobin,
Jakobshtat, Libava, Mitava, Pilten, Polangen, Tuckum, and Vindava.
Unfortunately, these documents do not specify to which of the Kherson
colonies these Jews relocated.
These records were photocopied by the Latvian National Archives
(Latvijas NacionÄlais ArhÄvs) at the request of the JewishGen
